Review: Linux Mint Xfce 201104

[ Thanks to Prashanth for this link. ]

In short, Linux Mint Xfce is now Debian-based instead
of Ubuntu-based. The developers had a few things to say about this:
(1) the desktop will be faster and lighter on resources (114 MB of
RAM at idle, 177 MB of RAM with Mozilla Firefox, LibreOffice
Writer, and LibreOffice Calc open all at the same time), (2) the
Xfce edition will now include more mainstream applications like
Rhythmbox instead of Exaile, and (3) the Xfce edition, being based
on Debian Testing, will be a rolling-release branch. All these
things sounded very exciting to me, so I decided to try it
out.”
